Hi, I'm homeschooling out of the US and so I've been doing a lot of book buying and carting for that. Something to add to the Amazon/Powell's ideas and also just for travel back to the US for visits. I pack one suitcase with the things we need to take with us and then stick that suitcase inside a second, larger suitcase (I do this for each family member so we travel there with 4 suitcases and back with 8 - the red caps are my best friends). That way I travel there...

I think a petition that asked for used breast pumps to be specifically listed in the prohibited items listing is a better petition option. The manufacturers are in business to make money and - sure - that could probably informs their stance. That doesn't mean their stance is wrong. Science holds that it is possible (even if the possibility is remote) that there could be a cross contamination with a used breastpump (in addition to the issue of planned obsolescence with...
My friend isn't due until September but I am already looking for fun stuff to stick in my basket I'm making her for her baby shower.
Does anyone have any feedback on the nursing necklaces from the link? I'm thinking about getting one for a friend who is a few months PG as a gift and was wondering if anyone else knew anything about them. TIA
